For Sale: EURO 1985 300TD that needs some love

Hey guys! It's been awhile since I've been on here but my W123 love is still alive and well.

This car has a very, very interesting story.

It is a European market 1985 300TD. (meaning it's a gray market car)

It was purchased with a twin in 1985 and imported to Lopez Island in Washington. It lived most of its life there until it moved to Orcas Island somewhere around 15 years ago.

My best friend lives on Orcas Island and bought this car in 2017 and we got it running as a daily driver. I purchased it last year and brought it to Oregon. I used the wagon as a dog hauler, grocery getter, etc until a friend down here took a shining to it and asked to purchase it from me.

Fast forward to January. I get a call from the friend I sold the car to saying he crashed it. He bought it back from insurance and I subsequently ended up with the car again as was the original agreement when I sold it to him.

I don't have the time to repair this poor thing. Now for the real details:

It is a 1985 300TD Euro market car...that means:

Non-turbo OM617
722.3 trans
crank windows, no sunroof, cloth seats, minimal options
SLS works very well

The car runs very well. The crash didn't damage the frame or any suspension parts. This is a sheet metal repair. It has always run fantastic and has great power for a non-turbo. The car has a little bit of rust from living in the islands but nothing structural.

It runs great but does have a broken oil cooler. It could be driven away from here with a new oil cooler and some bent sheet metal removal.

I'm looking for someone who wants to spend the time to repair this car and enjoy driving a rare 300 wagon.

The re-homing fee is $300. I have an Oregon totaled title for the car which can be turned into a normal salvage title after reconstruction.

The car is located in Independence, Oregon 97351

Please call/text me at 503.932.9622 - I won't be checking messages on here often.

I was in a somewhat similar situation. I sold my 85 300TD to a guy who subsequently got in an accident. I bought the car back from him for cheap. And did a half-assed repair job myself. 3 pics attached, before, pulling out dents using another car, and after.... This can be done.

I have a friend here in Southern California who owns a body shop and is interested in a W123 wagon. I gave him the contact info. Hopefully he will buy and repair this car.

the car is now running/driving...damaged fender has been removed. It's still a solid runner and is ready to drive you home.

The price is $800

Is the driver side inner rail 'crumpled' ? You can look straight down and see the angled divots on the rails which are there to crumple in case of impact.
